Cybersecurity for Teleworkers
Remote workers commonly run their own equipment and work in a physically unsecured environment. This increases their vulnerability to cyber attacks and demands careful deployment of security appliances, remote monitoring, and the creation of security policies that adhere to leading practices. Progent's veteran team of certified cybersecurity experts can help you to plan, deploy and manage a compliant cybersecurity environment that protects critical information in networks that include teleworkers.
- Firewalls allow companies to create a network environment that can be safely accessed by on-premises users and by at-home workers, mobile employees, suppliers, clients, and other stakeholders. Modern firewall devices allow you to configure and manage appropriate access rights to different groups of users and to expand your IT network and adjust your security as your business evolves and as cyber threats grow more complex. Progent works with both new and legacy firewall devices from all major manufacturers including Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, Check Point, Juniper, SonicWall and Fortinet. For details about Progent's firewall configuration services, refer to firewall integration and support expertise.
- Remote Endpoint Monitoring makes it easy to watch over the disparate computers used by telecommuters and either block or spot and respond to the latest cyber attacks such as ransomware. With Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, a lightweight agent is installed on every secured endpoint device, monitoring all activity and utilizing state-of-the-art machine learning and full execution context to identify zero-day attacks at inception. When a cyberattack is spotted, ProSight Active Security Monitoring immediately disconnects the impacted device from the network to quarantine the threat. Because the ProSight ASM software agent is self-contained, endpoint devices remain secure even if they are not connected to the Internet. For details about ProSight ASM, refer to remote endpoint monitoring for at-home workers.
- Security Audits can evaluate the exposure of your network to all classes of external and internal security threats for an environment that includes telecommuters. Progent can run online, automated security analysis scanning for rapidly and economically detecting a wide variety of security weaknesses that can be surfaced via the Internet. Progent's endpoint security audit experts, which can be managed by data security professionals with advanced credentials such as CISA, ISSAP, and GIAC, can help your company to evaluate your workflows and governance policies and review your network infrastructure to allow you to design the highest level of security for your at-home workers.
